Mayon (Luzon Island, Philippines): Earlier today, VAAC Tokyo sent an alert about a possible eruption and associated ash plume to 10,000 ft from the volcano, based on satellite imagery.
However, webcam images only show a moderate steam plume from the volcano and there is no mention of an eruption in the latest report of the volcano observatory. For this reason, it is likely that no explosion took place actually and that a weather cloud was mistaken for an ash plume. The overall activity of the volcano remains low to moderate; weak glow can be seen at night from the crater and seismic data reveal occasional rock falls (probably originating from the previously emplaced 2018 lava flows at the summit).

Piton de la Fournaise (La Réunion): The eruption of the volcano continues and provides surprises: a new fissure opened sometime during 5 March upstream of the previous eruptive site, on the northwestern flank of Piton Madoré at an elevation of approx. 1800 m.
The new fissure was first seen by tourists on a helicopter overflight yesterday morning and later confirmed by the volcano observatory. At least 6 new lava emission points were identified. Small new cones have already formed around them. It is however unclear whether it is just a prolongation of the existing eruptive fissure or a separate dike.
The magma output was estimated to be between 1-12 cubic meters per second only. This rather low value, together with a still slowly increasing trend of tremor, indicates that the system is not in a stable condition yet. The opening of additional fissures can be seen as a sign that magma flow to the surface through the existing conduits was not efficient enough, as if it is still "trying out" better pathways.

Barren Island (Indian Ocean): Explosive activity continues. Volcanic Ash Advisory Center (VAAC) Darwin warned about a volcanic ash plume that rose up to estimated 4000 ft (1200 m) altitude or flight level 040 .
The full report is as follows: VA OBS TO FL060 EXT W AND TO FL040 EXT E AT 07/1040Z. to 4000 ft (1200 m)
